Reviewer: Dark Moon - - September 24, 2011
Subject: Useful information

Here is a link to this film's IMDb page, which contains reviews that actually describe the film, and enough of a plot summary that the rest of us can make up our own minds about whether we want to download and watch it or not. Comments like "enjoyable movie" and "you should watch it" tell us that other reviewers liked it, but don't go very far toward helping us to decide whether we might.

I took a flier and downloaded this film just on the summary and comments posted here. About 20 minutes into it, I stopped and went looking for more info that might tell me where the story was going, to see if I wanted to stay with it and watch the rest. The review by 'planktonrules' on IMDb resonates with my own response to what I saw, and the plot summary suggests that it just gets worse. No, thanks (and no thanks, either).

Regarding this film's content, I'll only say that it's worth watching if you want to know who really runs the show in our consumer culture, and who's been running it for the past nine decades (nearly a century). That, and a book recommendation: The Hazards of Being Male: Surviving the Myth of Masculine Privilege, by Herb Goldberg (particularly the first chapter, In Harness: The Male Condition).

Subject: Infinite attention to detail
I know nothing about how movies are directed or made, and don't watch them 'analytically'.

When I started watching this one, my attention was instantly riveted. Something special is going on here.... what is it? After a while I parsed it out. Infinite attention to details of motion. Every finger, every toe, every eyebrow, every lip, is doing something meaningful at every moment. And it all works together. Again, I have no idea how the director accomplished this, but it's magnificent.

The visual equivalent of Wilhelm Ehmann performing Bach.
